    I've seem comments in another forum mentioning that they went to the 52686.

    As long as your PRL version number goes up from what it was before - I wouldn't be worried.

    And for those that will undoubtedly ask what a PRL is... it's kind of like what a "hosts" file is on a computer, but for your cell phone... it gives the phone a listing of systems it is allowed to connect to, in a specific order when your service provider's native owned/operated network is unavailable.

    Oh, I'm not worried about the PRL number. As long as my device connects to a network and works as it should, I'm content. In regard to the PRL (Preferred Roaming List), those of us who came from the Android platform and had rooted devices are very familiar with the term PRL and what is does......Anyway, thank you for bringing the update to our attention. I'll continue to try and see if I can update to the version you mentioned. Take care and have a great day.

    Also, I found this little tidbit:

    http://www.roamingzone.com/prl/#Verizon

    Verizon Wireless
    Note: Verizon issues several PRL's with each revision, and the one you receive depends on your plan, phone model and location. The order of roaming partners among all PRL's issued on the same date is virtually identical. PRL's in the '65000' range are generally sent to former Alltel customers who have kept their old Alltel plan.

    That does indeed look like a PRL from my Alltel days... yes, they're still using those in some places too in addition to the 65*** series PRLs.

    Do Verizon ipads have the same PRL? Anyone with one care to share? Mine is 15106 but just wondering if its the most current.

    Go to settings, general, about, and tap on "carrier" to see it.

    LTE devices have their own numbering system... I believe that is most current.

    I just called tech support and if users are seeing it start with a 2 or a 3 it is because they are still on a Alltel price plan... whoops i guess i never changed and never will lol

    Question...I assume updating PRL will not affect a jailbroken phone?

    THANKS for the post. Used to do this weekly on my old phones to keep everything updated.

    Didn't know how to find the PRL on the iPhone and didn't know if it was still necessary....this answers both of my questions. I was on 52707 out of the box but will dial *228 every so often.

    Have you noticed any general time table as to how often this should be updated?

    There's no real schedule... they come out when deals with roaming partners change... safe thing to do is update every month or two, and before a vacation where you're going a long way from home.

    They did some recent tweaking... according to a HowardForums post, an update came out on 5/14 - I did the *228 and mine went from 52707 to 52686

    Also got a Carrier Settings update earlier this week when I plugged my phone into the computer - iTunes served it up.

    Just did *228 for grins and now have 52809 - go figure.
